some things to discuss.

once upon a time, my sister told me my eyes looked like a cat's.
i don't necessarily like cats.
kittens are pretty darn cute. without claws.
but cats? thanks.

but she does have a point. in natural light, there's this intense shade of caramel (yes, a food name;) that shows up in my eyes along with the green. pine and moss, if you will. ;)
see? click on it.
random talk of eyeball color: over.
i just need you all to know another random thing, though not so random considering it is the beginning of march, and thus here in the midwest we just got a bit more snow....and some ice has formed. lovely.

so the thing you all need to know?
heels, no matter how sensible they are, do not mix with even the smallest patches of ice.
we took two vehicles to church because some of us go earlier, so today after church dad took anna, rach, lyd and me on a grocery run for a few things, and then home.
so. good news? actually, ahem, great news?
we bought the above bags of coffee.
dad picked out the roasts. all i did was root for us needing at least 1 bag of whole bean.
so here we are with two bags by the two major coffee places around here.
funny, i think.
i love the color of that kitchen towel.
and to be frank, i like it when kitchen towels are made to absorb water. some are like the feathers of a duck or something; water rolls right off. and that bugs me.

i had the privilege of experiencing the bliss of sleep in the early afternoon hours today.
2-3. but let me tell you, it was hard falling asleep; noise coming from downstairs where most normal people were awake, and the symptoms of perhaps some drippage in the back of my throat (thankfully not sore) and a slight cough. which, of course, i'm not taking back, so i've gulped healthy potions a few times today, and am going to bed at a better time than the past few nights' 12am.....
on to one last cosmetic subject: i really like the color my hair has faded to; roots notwithstanding.
in a week or so, i'm thinking a lighter brown with red? and then the next time...oh boy, in the present moment i'm hating to type this... the next time, i'd be going for dark blonde with perhaps some red highlights throughout.
*sniff sniff*
the other day i was pretty darn ready to be blonde again, but seeing a picture in good light like the one above makes me want to stay this color forever. i'm so weird.
Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago—the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled.

the concept of which i've never explored before.
well, the angle and time of day and wonderful sunlight, that is.
i'm kind of getting excited (well, i have my moments of inspiration for this type of "public speaking" that vlogging is) . . . so, if you please, you should go visit this post and comment. ask me something. what are you wondering??

Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring—quite often the hard way.
[Pamela Dugdale] ^^so true. so darn true.

the end.
oh, did i mention that the other day anna ordered our tickets for a josh groban concert in the summer?
yeah.... his voice is amazing with a capital a, but we think he's also quite adorable. quite. plus, he loves coffee. i remember him saying that once in a video or something; that he's always on a caffeine high during shows because of all the espresso or something. ;)
we're psyched. i'm just not that psyched for the price of the ticket. at least it's not in the nose-bleed section.

I love that you hate cats (because I do too), I like your hair but I always like blonde too, and I can't wait for your vlog!

What a random set of comments. :)

I love it that you always find a way to include coffee in your posts. My true love, coffee.

A cat's eyes aren't all that bad - they always look as if they are having a private joke at the world's expense. See? Maybe she just thinks you look coy and sardonic. Or something.

One of my roomie's from about six years ago told me I had yellow eyes. They are actually brown, but if you look closely, there is a ton of yellow in there! So . . . I didn't know how to take that either.

What're you going to do.
